Food & Drink

Whatever you choose to eat, at whichever time of day and wherever you sit we have an enviable choice of top-quality drinks to accompany your meal.


Both AA and Visit Wales inspectors gave their highest five-star rankings ever in 2013 for our food. Trip Advisor awarded a four-star Certificate of Excellence for the restaurant in both 2013 and 2014, based on dining-customer recommendations.

We have always aimed to make our food the best in the Porthmadog area and eventually want to become THE place to eat in Gwynedd. Our high-calibre chefs consistently create exceptional, meals at great value, using only the finest, freshest, ingredients sourced mainly from local suppliers in Wales.

Our style is seasonal Modern Welsh/British with a contemporary European twist for the more adventurous. This style brings out the best in local meats, game, seasonal fish and seafood, vegetables and cheese, releasing their true flavours.

We also serve a separate Traditional Classics British ‘gastro’ menu – for those who enjoy more homely meals such as sausage and mash – for lunch or evening dinner. Wherever you choose to sit – in either the restaurant, bar, lounge or patio garden – you can ‘mix and match’ the menus if you wish. For children, we have a ‘healthy’ menu of their favourites, again using only fresh ingredients and cooked to order.

We also make all our own bread, soups, sauces and fresh vegetarian meals and can cater for all special dietary needs – vegan, diabetic, celiac and gluten-free.

Culinary team of highest calibre

Just before Christmas 2013, Russell Croston became head chef, and was joined in June 2014 by a renowned local  sous chef. They are ably supported by two experienced chef de parties, local lads Llion Williams and Chris Williams.
